I just watched it and gave Lara all the rounds but one because for the most part Williams could only land punches on Lara's gloves, forearms, elbows or shoulders (props to Lara for his good high-guard defense, which kind of reminds me of Marlon Starling). Even for the 'clean punches' Williams landed, when they landed two men are so up close and personal those punches looked like arm slaps. On the other hand, Lara consistently landed jabs to the head and body, as well as so many overhand lefts to Williams' head (which snapped Williams' head backwards); those punches landed by Lara are a lot harder by the virtue of the fact that they are punches from a distance where Lara can generate power via foot and hip rotation.

Some may penalise Lara for few of the rounds where he is relatively inactive and admittedly Lara does have a tendency to move so much to the point where it feels as much a track meet as it is a boxing match. However, even if you give Williams the benefit of the doubt for a few close rounds there was no way Williams deserved the decision.

It is hardly fair to even call this fight a close-one simply because Williams had a higher work rate, when most of his work rate is wasted energy.

And for such a big guy like Williams he sure liked to fight like a sawed-off brawler (not the optimum style for a guy of his build, unless you are Sandy Saddler)...they said Williams had a 10-pound advantage but he was so huge next to Lara it looked like he had a 10-kilogram advantage!

Anyway this fight is the definition of a robbery.

Oh ok so the simple explanation is that you got the two the wrong way around?
